Race Day Reminder EMails and Barcode CheckIn

One of the best things about the new EMail system is the ability to put registrant information into each email very easily. My favorite example is sending an email a couple of days before the race.

This example, shows the new ability to add the Registration Bar Code to the email. If you are using the RunSignUp Check-In capability, this can significantly speed check-in times. Check out this email, and the text needed to create it below:
